gathering. [laughter] i know many of you and your friends and neighbors are recovering from the defense of hurricane sandy -- i want to let you know our thoughts are with everyone who has suffered during the storm and its aftermath. it has been a very challenging time for new york city. i think you have shown quite a bit of fortitude in coming back and getting back to business. my remarks today are going to focus on the reasons for the disappointingly slow pace of economic recovery in the united states, and the policy actions that have been taken by the federal open market committee to support the economy. in addition, i will discuss important economic challenges our country faces as we close out 2012 and move into 2013, in particular the challenge of putting federal government finances on a sustainable path and the longer run while avoiding actions that would endanger the economic recovery in the near term. the economy is continuing to recover from the financial crisis and recession, but the pace of the recovery has been slower than fomc participants and others had hoped or anticipated

can legally marry. marriage is usually a state law matter but under the federal defense of marriage act, a law passed in 1996, the federal government does not recognize those marriages. in that situation, a gay couple who is legally married in boston, cannot file a joint tax return. they cannot get benefits under social security for their spouse like another merit couple would. a series of lawsuits have been filed a federal appeals court in boston and new york ruled tartabull law is unconstitutional. it denies gays and lesbians equal protection under the law. they are legally married. the court said they deserve the same legal rights. the obama administration would not defend that law. the house republicans appointed john clement. many of those cases are under appeal and they will surely decide one of those cases this spring host: is there one more likely than the other? guest: that is an inside baseball question. the problem that arose is that elena kagan was the solicitor general when some of those cases were beginning and she mentioned at her confirmation hearings that she had pa

. the story of the election is a story of such excitement and random defense that it's almost impossible to capture. we could go on for hours on just this topic but his record in american politics is extraordinarily brief. he has a term in congress at the end of which he is so unpopular he doesn't run for reelection. the thing the state legislature doesn't tell you anything about your ability to be president and he hadn't even been in the state's legislature for quite awhile before he runs a 1960. he's run for the senate twice and he's been defeated both times. basically he's a national celebrity because of the dates with douglas which at the end of the day he lost and the speech in new york nobody was scoring the debate. at the end of the day the purpose of the the date was to win the election and he didn't win the election. and a speech he gave in new york to lead the way i like to think about is we can remember barack obama's speech in 2004 in the democratic national convention that makes him a national figure in four years later without that speech he isn't a candidate so lincoln giv

, in terms of the military supplies, the security, there is no is really, not the defense minister, the prime minister, none of the people who complain about obama as putting pressure on israel, none of them disagree with the fact that obama, the obama administration has been the most supportive administration of any on a level of strategic and military cooperation. when you look at this war in comparison to 2008, there was nearly unanimous support for israel. all of the senators, members of the house were saying, israel has got to defend itself. and when the israelis wanted the united states to go in and help for the cease-fire, the secretary of state what they are despite the fact this was not a prior issue. the issue is can the united states support israel, and at the same time be an effective a broker that takes arab interests into account? that has been the issue. it is not the level of support. host: richard, fla. on our line for independents. caller: it has been said that the muslim brotherhood has the same goal as al-qaida in the sense of wanting to establish a radical islamic governm
there and there is a goal he stopped a lot of the shots and he did amazing things on defense but you couldn't sing to govern the the state. it's not reasonable because of the way that it was structured, so it was a difficult case to make and romney didn't do it. >> the one thing talked about today is controlling or shrinking the size of government. just talk about taxes. the objective of holding the line or lowering taxes is ultimately supposed to contain or reduce the size of the government. do you feel closer or further from that goal today? >> much closer. one is the tea party and the other is the right and budget. up until the tea party, i would have been here and told you obama is going to spend too much money and you can't get the american people upset about spending too much. you have to wait until it becomes a tax increase that's why the protection pledge was i think the best defense against the government. the same misreading of his mandate that he's doing now so when some of us suggested the misreading of the mandate he did it for years ago. he threw away the approval rating to spend the stimulus
, they very ably defended themselves against overwhelming numbers with a very skillful defense down to virginia. it would be kind of a balance put it. [applause] >> thank you. >> this is a little bit politically incorrect, but i was wondering about the actions of sheridan and what are considered war crimes now. >> war crimes? well, certainly what they did on the great plains would be war crimes. what they did in georgia in the shenandoah valley, i'm not so sure. they tried to save civilian lives. the purpose was to destroy resources and their ability to wage war. i think that would be arguable. but certainly a very good point.

they reacted with a very ably defended themselves against overwhelming numbers in the skillful defense all the way through virginia so there would be more of a balanced approach. >> i was wondering if sheridan and sherman engaged in what they consider the war crime? >> certainly what they did on the great plains would be war crimes but they did in georgia and the shenandoah valley because they tried to scare pecos barras civilian lives. the purpose was to destroy the southern resources and their ability to wage the war. so i think that would be arguable but a great point, yes.

but with stanton who would replace cameron as secretary of defense in various generals, it's difficult. this was not a unified society. this was one i had to be managed constantly and a typical endeavor. >> host: okay, so let's look at your third president who was also as extreme as woodrow wilson. does this turn out exactly is abraham lincoln? >> guest: not even close. wilson again is as unfiltered as you can possibly get. wilson impact is the least experienced in terms of time in politics, the least experienced person ever elected president. at the time he becomes president, his total political experience, all of it, is about 1.5 years so he is not spending a day in the legislature. he gets elected president. >> host: he has written a lot about politics. >> guest: like me has a political scientist. i suppose that should make the more favorably disposed toward him but academic research on politics is not the same thing as doing politics and not the same thing as the experience. in some ways we value experience too much. experiences about moving you up the learning curve. the other thi

to escalate the situation in gaza. no defense is perfect. and our hearts break for the loss of every civilian israel, and palestinian, and for all of those who have been wounded or are living in fear or danger. >> john: think back to 1998 that was the year -- i'm sorry. 1999 was the year that mrs. clinton said a two-state solution was the only way out. after that of course, the bush administration adopted a two-state solution and the obama administration adopted a two-state solution as a policy. that makes three administrations in a row, and yet no one wants to make it happen. of course some people think this is a very bad idea. i think having the blockade for gaza is a really bad idea. i think it hurt's israel's safety and security long term and now that egypt is run by a guy who is not exactly a dictator fascist puppet controlled by america, i think you will see a change. and i pray that the egyptian/israel peace agreement will never be threatened. that's one of the greatest achievements i think for america of the last 50 years. we can only hope this is the last of its
of this. it proved that its iron dome missile defense system could protect vast areas and could shoot down the majority of hamas rockets. and one of the things it's going to get out of this from the united states is additional help in providing more missiles for iron dome so that it has even a greater range of protection. so the dynamics are changing a little bit on both sides. both sides can claim victory. but neither side can win militarily and both sides know that. >> you just brought up iron dome. you also brought up hezbollah, which brings up the question of iran here, another major actor, maybe the key actor in opposition to israel in the region. if you're iran and you just watched this for the last ten days, what do you take from it? >> well, that israel does have means of protecting itself. it does have this new iron dome defense capability. i'm not convinced that iran actually, if it is developing a nuclear weapon, has the intention of using it against israel. but what it -- what the bigger question really is would hezbollah and neighboring -- in a country that neighbors israel us
